Special Issue on Plants, Soil and Environment

Soil plays a key role in plant growth. Beneficial aspects to plants include providing physical support, water, heat, nutrients, and oxygen. Mineral nutrients from the soil can dissolve in water and then become available to plants.  Although many aspects of soil are beneficial to plants, excessively high levels of trace metals or applied herbicides can be toxic to some plants. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of plants, soil and environment.

In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore plants, soil and environment. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Interactions of plants with minerals, water and microbes
  • Anatomy and morphology of roots and plant
  • Soil biology, ecology and plant
  • Plant-water relations
  • Soil and plant nutrition

  • The influence of climate and environment on plants
  • Plant development, growth and productivity
  • Plant breeding and seed production
